A Visalia man has been arrested on suspicion of inappropriate sexual conduct with a minor.

Visalia police say Israel Villarreal, 49, had sexual conversations with a 10-year-old boy using a live video chat phone.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force first started its investigation into Villarreal back in December. A search warrant served on Thursday revealed enough evidence to take the suspect into custody. He faces charges of annoying, molesting, and exploiting children.

Police believe there may be more victims, and they urge anyone with information to call Det. Chris Jennings at (559) 713-4727.
